The MBTA will begin demolishing the Ball Square Bowling alley tomorrow, according to the "Construction Update" email that the City of Somerville sent me last week.

  • Starting Monday, April 22, crews will begin demolishing four buildings on Boston Ave. near the Broadway intersection, where the new Ball Square T station will be. Demo and debris removal will continue throughout the week between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m., requiring lane shifts around the work zone.

According to the Somerville News Weekly, the alley closed in November, 2017. They also have a photo of the BOWLING sign being removed last month. (I do not really recommend The Somerville News Weekly, but I cannot find any other source for these two news items.)

Long-time readers of this group and its LiveJournal predecessor may recall a big party that we held there in February 2010, organized by [personal profile] plumtreeblossom. Here is a Flickr album from that night, including some backstage photos of the pin-setting machinery.

Where to buy matzah?

Does anyone know where around here I can buy a single box of matzah? (I know, it's kinda last-minute.)

In past years I've been able to find it at my usual grocery store, the Star Market at Porter Square, but when I went this year they only had huge 5-pound multi-box packages that are too big for me to carry home (and I definitely won't eat that much matzah in a week!) or the kind of matzah that isn't kosher for Passover. I thought for sure the Butcherie in Brookline would have it, but they were out of everything except the $22/box stuff. Is there anywhere I can still buy a plain single box, or am I out of luck?

I'm going to a friend's Seder, and they'll have matzah for the Seder, so I don't need it for tonight -- it would just be nice to have matzah for the week, if I can still get some. If it's too late to get matzah for this year, I'd still appreciate knowing likely places for future reference. Thanks!

Milk kefir grains?

Does anyone in the area have active milk kefir grains that are ready to be split? I'd like to get back into making kefir, but I'm not sure the grain I stuck in the freezer is coming back to life.

Bonus if it is happily eating UHT milk (Ultra High Temperature pasteurized a.k.a. ultra-pasteurized) since it's getting pretty hard to find milk in stores these days that's been pasteurized at normal temperatures. I've heard that UHT is harder for kefir cultures to digest, so if I can find one that is adapted to it, that would be useful.

I'd be happy to trade a small ground cherry seedling (Cossack Pineapple variety) if that's something you'd like. :-)

Die Solis ad Museum Maritimum in Greenwich iimus. Quam longe hoc museum -- hanc viciniam enim -- non invisissemus nescimus. Exhibitiones multae semotae sunt, et novas habet. Uno in muro loci de mare e litteris carminibusque inscribuntur. Muro conspecto Mel ridens mihi unum e numero locorum ostendit, quia versus erant III e carmine Carrion titulo a grege British Sea Power canto :

"The salt, the spray, the gorgeous undertow / Always, always, always the sea / Brilliantine mortality"*

Sine dubio, illud carmen in mente duobus iam diebus volitabat.


* Sal, spuma, vertex pulcher / semper semper semper mare / mortalitas « Brilliantina* »

** Brilliantine est unguentum ad comae et barbae curam.

Please enjoy a YouTube playlist of all* requested songs**. Corrections and suggestions are welcome, especially if any videos are region-locked.

I suggest clicking through to watch on YouTube rather than watching the embedded playlist, as the embedded playlist will only load 200 songs of the total 272.

If the above links don't work, try the direct link to the playlist here.

*The song The Boy's Still Running by Oysterband is not available on Youtube, but is available on Spotify and on BBC Music.

**Video notes: House of the Rising Sun has implied underage sex; Rabbit in Your Headlights has violence and disturbing content. Other videos may also have un-warned-for contents.

option 1: take med at correct time.

option 2: place med carefully on top of the day bed so it can't be missed, go to the bathroom, come back to the day bed, lie down obliviously on top of med.
